Normally I hate to make fun of other people'* cars because of the fact that I firmly believe everyone has a right to do what they please to their car...but I have to say that is def. ugly to me and I hate seeing a car get wrecked in that manner....

I agree, but personally I dont like the ghetto look, black wheels dont do it for me...but each for their own.
My point exactly.
ghetto = poor and undesirable.

Haha, ok I wasn't exactly sure if you meant ghetto as a good thing, I think some people would consider ghetto as cool.

it takes a special car to pull off black wheels and NOT look like crap on a stick.


that neon is not one of those special cars.

Do you really care what anyone else thinks?
If so, I would need to actually see your car to give you my opinion. I can already tell you that if it has black wheels on it in my opinion it would look better with polished or chrome wheels.

Regarding the Audi posted above, it is a neat little car, but in my opinion it would look better if those wheels were bright shiny polished, or even dull natural aluminum. And the fake rivets look exactly that... fake.
